Ever since I moved back home from East Texas my blood sugar has been out of whack. It doesn’t help matters that my step Dad comes home from work hungry at 10:00 pm and wants my mom to fix him supper around that time because he thinks he’s starving. (I wouldn’t do this if it were my husband. I would say “there’s the hot pockets, there’s the microwave…..have fun and goodnight.”). For some odd reason and defying all logic I decided to join in with their midnight escapade of eating a large meal before almost the next day…..for a week or so and it led to over 300 in blood sugar readings the next day!!! Mix that with a new doctor trying to ” experiment” with my medication and you have a recipe for disaster!
Well to shorten this a bit I’ll get to the point. Skip the evening meal. I started to realize that if I made lunch my main meal of the day , when I use the most energy and have a light snack for supper not only will I have better control over my blood sugar, I will also loose a little weight. Lost a few more pounds since my last update and blood sugar not as high in the morning. So I think I found what works for me. Now, if I can just get back into an exercise routine!!!!!
